The term cheapest or most affordable comes to mind once you are left with a limited budget for a new phone but yet you still want something better. Choosing between getting the right phone for your money is not that easy since we have hundreds of low, mid and high-end smartphones to choose from. However, in this case, we consider the price as the main criteria to determine the best phones to buy.

I am sure you have seen those expensive phones but can’t afford them, don’t worry you might not need to spend that much on a smartphone while you have other pressing needs. However, if you have the money to afford most of the mid-range smartphones then go for them because they have more feature and power to sustain you till you can buy a bigger phone.

Price of phones has increased in Nigeria

It’s no longer news that in Nigeria once there is an increase in the exchange of dollar then everything increases and not just the price of phones. Most cheap phones that we used to buy for 15k is now 20-30K while the ones we used to buy 30k is now between 40 to 60k.

To find a good phone that you can buy with 30-35k has become a very big issue these days especially the one that has good features but you can still find cheap phones in Nigeria. However, you shouldn’t expect much from such phones.

I am going to list the best cheapest phones in Nigeria that you can buy but you shouldn’t expect the function and performance of a high-end smartphone on a smartphone of 20K but if you are just looking for a low priced phone that can do Whatsapp, Facebook and browsing then you are good to go with any cheap Android phone.

How to determine the best phone to buy

We have all kind of phones to choose from and choosing th right one is never an easy task but since this guide is all about Cheapest Phone in Nigeria, I have selected some good phones you can buy but there are few things you must do while making the choice.

Firstly, You must know what you want most in a smartphone and mind that since we are focusing on the cheapest phones that the features will be limited as well. If a smarthone with a high-quality camera is what you value most then look for the phone with a good camera on the list and if you value battery then look for the one with a big battery.

The same goes for other features like memory, fingerprint sensor, 4G network and so on, Go for the phone that has the features that you want most because you might not be able to find everything you want in a cheap entry-level smartphones.
